Happy Christmas and happy homeowners thanks to Home Connect

With just a few weeks to go until Christmas, homeowners moving into a new build development this side of the holidays could be left with a festive season without internet access. Rather than developers having to face the wrath of unhappy customers, UK Connect has a quick and fast solution that will provide the perfect Christmas present.

Problems with internet connectivity on new developments is common as infrastructure and service lines may not be up and running immediately. The frustration this causes extends not only to the homeowner, but also to the on-site construction and sales teams.

Research by Cable.co.uk has found that people moving into new-builds are twice as likely to have to wait a month or more to have broadband installed than those moving into second-hand homes. For homeowners wanting to enjoy Christmas by streaming movies or video chatting with long-distance relatives and friends, the lack of internet connectivity can be very hard to bear.

UK Connect’s home broadband solution – Home Connect – is residents’ broadband in a box which provides high-speed broadband from the outset, until a fixed line is installed.

Arguably more useful than a Christmas hamper, this house builders welcome gift ensures instant internet access and comes with full technical support from the UK Connect team.

For residents, Home Connect provides clear evidence that their developers care from the first day of the move, boosting customer service ratings and also ensures that the sales office staff are not distracted with the demand of trying to resolve internet issues, leaving them to focus on getting more people moving into a new home.
